Since the launch of our home styling service 9 months ago, sectional sofas seem to present the biggest styling challenge, particularly in small spaces.
The attraction to sectional sofas over the traditional sofa is the increasing demand for additional comfort and seating.
However when you are moving with a sectional sofa to new living spaces, the sectional can limit the flow of traffic, overpower a room and also not fit the new space in terms of its configuration!
I often recommend splitting the sectional if a room is struggling to absorb the size of the sectional so that you have 2 traditional style sofas opposite each other. Adding scatter cushions or throws will deflect from the fact that one side doesn’t have an arm. I also find that breaking the rectangular angles of the sofa with round ottomans or tables and free standing lights help to create a balance in the room.
